As most people know, there are constant discoveries being made in the field of archeology and more specifically Egyptology. According to the Ministry of Antiquities, Egyptian archeologists have recently made two rare discoveries of a shrine of the ancient god Osiris in Luxor and head of a statue of Roman Emperor Marcus Aurelius in Aswan in southern Egypt. Even foreigners have always been interested in what Ancient Egypt has to offer in terms of antiquities.
The Minister of Antiquities, Khaled Al-Anany, stated that the cooperation between Egypt and China is crucial as both countries are deeply rooted in their ancient civilizations. He also told Xinhua, “We send many experts to China every year to exchange experience.” It has been revealed that a Chinese archeological team is on its way to start its mission in Egypt’s Luxor starting in September.
Moreover, Egypt will witness the opening of several archaeological projects across the country as soon as they get the necessary funding. According to the China Daily, China now holds the world’s leading three-dimensional remote sensing and imaging technology. With their advanced indoor testing and analysis techniques, Chinese archaeologists will help Egyptians uncover buried treasures.
